Ó Donnghaile meets PSNI on interface violence

29 April, 2008

Sinn Féin's East Belfast Representative Niall Ó Donnghaile and the PUP's Dawn Purvis have met the PSNI in Stormont today to discuss the anti-social and anti-community behaviour at the junction of Mountpottinger Road and Castlereagh Street on Sunday and Monday.

Speaking following the meeting, Mr Ó Donnghaile said,

"For two consecutive nights I have joined community representatives and residents in calling for an end to this violence. There is no desire for this type of activity within the community and those engaged in it must stop now.

"Myself and Dawn Purvis have been proactive and have met the representatives of East Belfast PSNI today in Stormont.

"We conveyed to the PSNI that there must be a measured response and a common sense approach to this violence and there must be continued communication between community leaders and the PSNI on this issue." Críoch
